Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
For marks you take armour penatration. For seals and Glyphs you need to take all flat attack damage runes. For Quints., you need to take two armour pen and one attack damage. This would give you great harrassing and killing ability early and mid game. And you wont really have to buy in armour pen items in game until late to never.
You should take all thirty in offense cause thats his main priority.. cause with the items you choose you should have great survivability. Also, the armour pen and cooldown reduction with the extra attack added to your runes really make him a BIG threat.
Your items are like are for survivability if used right and a psych out because with your items choices they will think you are a noob talon and will fail and won't be any threat at all. This build is so unique you are going to laugh when you figure that it works. This is one of those items builds that you really can't explain. You just have to use or see it to believe it. :P
Now this totally goes against Phreak's spotlight on Talon. You want to get noxian diplomacy first and play safe and max it first. At level two you want to get cutthroat( this will be maxed last). Once you get level two you should be able to get a good kill.. You want to cutthroat in then activate noxian diplomacy.. This will take a great deal of there health and if they stay to fight you they will surely die. Make sure you have a good teammate or KNOW you can kill him easily. You want to take rake (max this skill second) at 3 which will make you even more dangerous because of that extra slow damage plus cutthroat. Totally melt your opponent. Take shadow assault at the levels as it come up. (6 11 16).
You want to take Ignite and Exhaust if you want to play really agressive but if you are new and you don't wannt take any chances take flash and ghost for chasing and running capability. Exhaust will help with your survivabilty killing enemies and it activates your passive. And your ignite will kill enemies if the bleed from noxian diplomacy and your executioners blade doesnt finish the job.
He needs to majorly farm. And also he is a great threat when fed. Your build is cheap early game so you want to get those items as fast as possible.
Creeping / Jungling
All you need to know is grab the golem and lizard buff in 5v5 as whenever they come up. Unless someone else needs it. Try not to jungle on the enemies side unless they have no turrets that far or if you have team coverage.
Now Talon is a very greedy player but he can be a great support. Try to take top lane as much as possible. He prevails there the most. You almost never want to initiate unless you are sure you can take the heat. Other wise you want to aim for there ranged players and there mages first. Easy kills indeed . just burst in with cutthroat then shadow assault. depending on if they on top of you or not you can choose to get those kill by noxian diplomacy then rank and then auto attack and use your abilities when they come or run out of there to battle again after your abilities cool down. If you are 1 v 1 a mage by spamming your abilities.. it will be extremley easy but if you are 1 v 1 somoene like sion or xin zhao you want to cutthroat in and then noxian diplomacy then rake and then fight.. and when you hit about half health use your ult then cast you executioners calling (and ignite and exhaust if possible) then reactivat your ult if not activate already and destroy the rest of his health with cutthroat and noxian diplomacy. Oh and always be last or second to last to enter a team fight. He is basically clean up duty.
Well that's all for Talon.. Dont know the build till you try it.. Its really fun to use and will keep you on your toes.. And hey if you dont want to try to use it then just add me on League of Legends and I will prove it to you or walk you through him. My IGN: Kamson . Hope this build help and have fun getting legendary a good amount of your gameplay. :)
